Key product

Deco Linen
Our most popular patterned surface finish combines attractive design with functionality. To offer this pattern for a wide range of applications we produce the Deco Linen finish with four different reflectance characteristics. After embossing, a recovery annealing is applied for improved formability, while tension levelling provides a superior flatness.
 
Typical applications
Elevators, escalators, cash desks, exterior and interior architecture.

Patterned finishes

Patterning of stainless steel leads to an enhanced combination of design and function. Outokumpu offers a large variety of patterned surface finishes, and each pattern can have different reflection properties.

Our most popular designs are Deco Linen, Deco Haze, Deco Laser, Deco Microlinen, Deco Diamonds, Deco Square, Deco Microchecker, and Deco Leather Grain. Individual patterns can also be developed according to specific needs. After embossing, a recovery annealing is applied for improved formability and, due to tension leveling, an extremely high flatness can be achieved.

Typical applications
Elevators, escalators, interior architecture, anti-slip surfaces, sinks, claddings, facades, cash desks, refrigerated display cases, scratch-resistant housing for various machines.

Deco Linen

Our most popular patterned surface finish combines attractive design with functionality. To offer this pattern for a wide range of applications we produce the Deco Linen finish with four different reflectance characteristics. After embossing, a recovery annealing is applied for improved formability, while tension levelling provides a superior flatness.

Deco Linen Star

Compared to the standard Deco Linen this high-end Linen version goes through an additional production process which adds a very fine texture upon the pattern structure resulting in a more sparkling finish with slightly lower reflectance alongside with a higher homogeneity of the surface.

Deco Linen Matt

Duller than regular Linen but nonetheless a lively finish due to a smoothly and slightly glittering reflectance. 

Deco Linen Supermatt

This symbiosis of patterning and industrial blasting results in a homogeneously dull finish with well below 10% specular reflectance but still showing an unobtrusive sparkle.

Deco Austenite

Modeled on the microstructure of an austenitic stainless steel, plays with the light to create a dazzling effect.

Deco Bricks

Scaled-down version of a brick wall, creating an industrial impression.

Deco Diamonds

Strictly geometric pattern given added tension by its diagonal orientation.

Deco Haze

Finish appearance as sun shines through the fog. The finish is capable of withstanding heavy forming operations and offers advantages in terms of scratch resistance and easy-clean properties.

Deco Ice Crystals

Irregular coarse structure. Insensitive to fingerprints, scratches and other surface damages.

Deco Laser

Laser consists of digitalized micro-patterns which are randomly arranged without a pattern repetition. Under all viewing angles and light conditions a nearly homogeneous surface is observed.

Deco Leather Grain

Irregular structure making it insensitive to scratches and similar surface damage.

Deco Linen without Slubs

Removing the distinctive linen thread makes Deco Linen less directional and increases its even and elegant look. 

Deco Microchecker

Triggers industrial associations, ideal when a high-quality technical impression needs to be conveyed.

Deco Microlinen

Scaled-down version of the typical linen pattern, making for a finer, denser, higher-quality appearance.

Deco Microlinen without Slubs

The scaled-down version is available without the linen thread to create a fine and dense but less directional finish.

Deco Nine

Linen structure, but deeper and more pronounced textile surface appearance. Insensitive to scratches. Pattern remains intact even under forming.

Deco Sand Surface

Fine irregular structure creating the impression of a sand surface.

Deco Square

Clearly structured pattern creating a technical impression. Raised and recessed sections have different reflection characteristics.

Deco Triangle

A calm, stylish pattern consisting of small equilateral triangles.

Versions of patterned surfaces

 

Version Star
Compared to the standard Deco Linen this high-end version goes through an additional production process which adds a very fine texture upon the pattern structure resulting in a more sparkling finish with slightly lower reflectance alongside with a higher homogeneity of the surface. All other patterns are available in Star version as well.

Version Matt
Duller than the regular Deco Linen but nonetheless a lively finish due to a smoothly and slightly glittering reflectance. All other patterns are available in Matt version as well.

Version Supermatt
This symbiosis of pattering and industrial blasting results in a homogeneously dull finish with well below 10% specular reflectance but still showing an unobtrusive sparkle. All other patterns are available in Supermatt version as well.

Deco 2R2

Deco 2R² is a high-gloss surface exceeding the quality level of standard bright annealed finishes. With its high specular reflectance, high DOI and low haze Deco 2R² is closing the gap between BA/2R materials and cost intensive No. 8 mirror polished surfaces.
 
Typical applications
Interior and exterior architecture, design products, technological components, and products which require high reflectivity or low surface roughness.

Deco Rolled-On

Deco Rolled-On finish is an embossed polished pattern on a BA substrate that offers improved corrosion resistance.
 
Typical applications
Interior architecture, escalators, elevators, store counters and shelves, cash desks, display cases, handrails, commercial kitchens, chimney pipes, grills, beverage equipment.

Deco Supermatt

A cost competitive, industrially shot-blasted surface finish characterized by a dull, extremely homogeneous and high-quality appearance.
 
Typical applications
Facades, roofing.

Polished and brushed finishes

Polishing a stainless steel surface with an abrasive belt of a certain grain size leads to a homogeneous, satin-like and highly decorative surface finish.
 
By optimizing the grain of the belt the surface finish can be fine-tuned to meet specific application requirements. A finer grain of the abrasive belt results in a higher gloss and more even finish. Using successively finer grit belts, an almost mirror-like surface can be produced. We offer a minimum grit size of 60 and maximum of 400.
 
The ground or polished surface has more or less clearly visible scoring, which also makes scratches from daily wear and tear less visible. A polished surface is also easier to recreate and blend, for example after repairs or welding work, compared with a 2B or Deco BA/2R surface.
 
Because of Outokumpu’s ability to provide both wet and dry polishing, we have an exceptionally wide range that can meet any demands or requirements.

Typical applications
Elevators, escalators, refrigerators, handrails, store counters and shelves, cookware, kitchen goods, architectural cladding.
 
Available for these products
All austenitic and ferritic stainless steels in the Moda, Core, and Supra ranges.
 
Min/max dimensions
Thickness: 0.5–4.0 mm/0.019–0.15 in
Width: up to 1500 mm/59 in

 

 


Deco 4N

Elegant finish with a satin-like look. Wet-polishing in our stainless steel mill assures a smooth and clean surface for highest demands on appearance and cleanability. Ra typically between 0.18 to 0.30 µm.

Deco Hairline

Strongly linear texture with continuous brushing lines.

Deco Microlon

The very fine grinding texture makes the surface appear in an elegant dark gray. Microlon gives interior and exterior claddings a classy appearance.

Deco Scotch-Brite

The use of brushing (with Scotch Brite®, for example) provides a silky-matt finish without clear grinding scores.
